Summer's Last Hoorah!

I have to report to school this Friday.......depression, anxiety, stress overload, so many things NOT done this summer.  In order to "ignore" these emotions that wreck havoc on my mind and body, I planned my little trip to Vermont to pick up the Romneys this week.  After a grueling ride across NY on 90.....the most boring ride of flat roads and trees that the mind can imagine, I arrived in Bennington Vermont after about 9 hrs and 2 potty breaks. 

There was a heavy fog starting to cover the beautiful Green Mountains as I arrived as the humidity was quite high.  I found my hotel in Bennington, checked in, and then went up to the downtown area before it started to rain.

Bennington is a nice little place with lots of history.  Tomorrow I am going to Bennington Pottery, then to the Battle of Bennington Monument, and hopefully the Robert Frost Stone House before I head up to Grandview Farm to stay the night and get my new babies.

I found some Moose tracks in downtown Bennington ..........

.........and more Moose's.  These moose statues can be tracked in various places throughout Vermont and I believe Maine.  If you biggify the pic you can see all the details that represent New England lifestyles.  It started to rain so my little walk was cut short but.......... one of the real estate office windows I found this house for sale in Vermont.  The price tag is "alittle" out of my price range so I bought some Vermont Power Ball tickets.  Hey, maybe I won't even have to go back to school and I can pack my sheep and goats up and move up here;)

PS...I would like to thank blogger Melanie for her driving advice because the GPS said to go 87 North and she told me NOT to go 87 North unless I wanted to sit in traffic! Thank You Melaine!!

Glad you got there safely, now dad can relax for a day until you have to drive back home!
Great pictures and I can't believe you only had to take 2 potty breaks!

Oh, nice house. I'll keep my fingers crossed that the right numbers fall into the tumblers for you. Isn't it fun to dream?!?

Hip-Hip-Horray....I'm so happy that your adding Romney to your little herd. You will love them.Are you getting the clean faced ones or the old breed with the teddy bear fuzzy face? Hope you had a safe trip and can't wait to see pictures of them.

It was wonderful to finally meet you and share our farm with you! Hope the ride home with the lambs is uneventful. I am sure by the time you get them home, you will already know them quite well.
